In August of this year, Wei Lai founder Li Bin revealed the signal to enter the European market, saying that he will start going overseas in the second half of 2021, and plans to enter the major global markets before 2023 or 2024.
Recently, Weilai mass-produced vehicles rolled off the production line for the first time in a single month and exceeded 5,000 units, breaking the monthly production record of China's high-end electric vehicle brands. In the Chinese market, Weilai's current mass production capacity is relatively stable, and sales volume is also considerable. In the second quarter of this year, Weilai delivered a total of 10,331 new cars, with sales of nearly 3.5 billion yuan, an increase of 146.5% year-on-year.
As of August this year, Weilai Automobile and Ideal Automobile have delivered a total of 53,600 and 15,700 respectively. As of July this year, Xiaopeng Motors has delivered a total of 20,700 vehicles, and Weimar Motors has delivered more than 30,000 vehicles so far. However, Weilai has not yet achieved profitability. In the second quarter of this year, the net loss was nearly 1.2 billion yuan.
In the third quarter, Tesla delivered nearly 140,000 vehicles, and it has been profitable for five consecutive quarters. At the same time, it is reported that in the fourth quarter of this year, Tesla will mass-produce Model 3 in China and deliver it to overseas markets such as Europe, Singapore, and Australia as early as the end of this year or early next year. Tesla's Berlin plant will also start production of Model 3 and Model Y in 2021, helping to expand the European market.
Editor-in-chief's comment: Weilai Automobile, which is emerging in the domestic electric vehicle market, has set its sights on overseas. Tesla has confirmed the success of going overseas, seizing market opportunities, and taking the lead in achieving stable profitability. Weilai also needs to expand its territory and seize more markets. Whether it is a traditional car company or a new car manufacturer, going to the sea is a compulsory course for a certain stage of development. On the one hand, the domestic market has limited space after all, and needs to rely on overseas markets for more growth, and going overseas is expected to become the second growth curve; on the other hand, it will enhance the overall influence of the brand, establish an international image of the brand, and enhance consumers at home and abroad Recognize and boost sales.
However, Weilai also faces some challenges when going out to sea. On the one hand, despite having long battery life, battery swap mode and cost-effective advantages, Weilai also needs to be wary of unacceptable. Since the European market usually regards electric vehicles as the second car in the family and does not pursue the range, NIO needs to use shorter-range models as the current flagship, and long-range models as a supplement to cater to the mainstream needs of local consumers...
The matter of building a car has changed. Since 2014, building a car has become the most desirable thing for entrepreneurs. Not only are successful entrepreneurs working hard to start their second and third ventures, but countless "grassroots" teams have also begun to move around, as if the threshold of building a car was suddenly pulled to non-existent. But facts have proved that there are indeed barriers to building cars, and it limits most players. Li Bin, the founder and chairman of Weilai Automobile , once said that an electric car company needs at least 20 billion yuan to reach mass production. Xiaopeng Motors Chairman He Xiaopeng also sighed: "It used to be an exaggeration to see others making cars. I jumped in and realized that 20 billion is not enough to spend.” In the end, the new car-building forces ran out of three first-tier players, but at the same time it also made people realize how difficult it is for a new company to build cars. People's attit
The news of the newly redesigned 2021 Tesla Model S was suddenly mentioned by Musk at the beginning of the year. Everyone was pleased with the Model S that had not been updated for a long time.

However, for many new energy vehicle brands, there is still a long and rugged mountain road to go before they truly reach the "willows and flowers in another village". New energy vehicles are accelerating toward the sinking market, looking for new incremental space. However, for more new energy vehicle brands, how to break the dilemma of low prices in the sinking market, increase the added value of products, and obtain more profits in addition to the increase in sales are long-term problems that need to be faced. On the other hand, after Baidu , Xiaomi also intends to enter the game. Traditional car companies continue to launch new new energy brands, and more and more players are entering the game. In 2020, the power of new cars will usher in strong growth, and Tesla will also achieve sales of over 100,000 vehicles in the Chinese market. Many high-end brand new
